Next Presentation Focus: Kaizen Event
What is a Kaizen Event?
A kaizen event is a problem solving tool where a cross sectional team of stakeholders collaborate together to rapidly solve a problem during a dedicated block of time. This tool is typically used when the problem affects multiple areas and we need to gain consensus on any improvements. A kaizen event focuses on eliminating waste in a process using a hands-on approach close to the specific place where the problem is happening.
The topic for this meeting will be a discussion on the activities, tools and templates used for how to lead successful kaizen events.
